Husband and husband.

On the heels of the show’s third GLAAD Award nomination for the storyline earlier this year, "Days of our Lives" makes television history by celebrating the first gay wedding between two men in soap opera history, April 1, 2014.

Starting on April 1 for three consecutive episodes, the fan-favorite couple Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) (affectionately deemed "WilSon") will tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony presided by a surprise officiant. In 2012 Will came to terms with his sexuality in powerful episodes that had audiences around the world captivated and rooting for the character to find love.

The slow building romance of the beloved couple has captured the hearts and minds of viewers far and wide culminating in their engagement earlier this year. With great surprises in store and excitement building around this momentous occasion, audiences will be blown away by the powerful performances to come.
